half to care about how much he knows. we know, nasa we know how much he cares. that is a part of what we have to be able to bring over. it is not how much we know, it is that they know how much we care. as arthur talks about communicating, that will be one of the premises as we go ahead and try to move ahead. one of the big challenges we face -- i don't know if we have a chance to talk about it here, but i know from talking to each each of my colleagues on different occasions, it is something that challenges all of us. we measure inputs, how many people work for us, what is the size of our budget, all of that. then you go through a stage and you measure output, how many conferences that you have, how the papers did you produce, how may times were your people on tv? what we have to get to, throughout the whole business of policy politics, is how do we measure outcomes? not just input, output, but outcomes. we have to get better at doing that. we have to get better at staying focused. that is why in past years, i have been so proud to work with my colleagues, ed crane, former head of ca
